Robert Hall founded the winery in 1999 with his wife and grew it to become the fifth-largest in the region, winning numerous accolades including Golden State Winery of the Year by the California State Fair in 2010.

Dracula – The Ballet

By the way, I'd pair any Dracula story with a deep, dark red wine, such as Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Sirah, or Malbec.

Vegas Food & Wine Festival – (and my new iPhone!)

Vegas Food & Wine Festival was targeted for those folks who'd rather not spend the equivalent of a car payment for a day's foodie ticket.

Honeymoon, Africa, Cape Town, and Wine! (Part eight)

Along the way we were serenaded by the grunts of hippos in the water, the trumpets of elephants on shore, and the toots of Egyptian geese flying overhead.

The Peculiarity of Wine

By necessity, Pinot and I have an open relationship. While I regularly taste, assess, and enjoy other wines, Pinot is always my first love and the one I return to nightly. It is sensual. It is luxurious. Hedonistic, even.

Queen! Freddy Mercury! Adam Lambert! The Strip! OMG OMG OMG!

They both had the opportunity to do their own solos - and one with Brian May and Freddy Mercury was incredible - because it was not the Adam Lambert show.

Honeymoon, Africa, Cape Town, and Wine! (Part Seven – Safari Week)

Just for Locals: Project Neon Fatigue Syndrome

I’ve dubbed this irrational behavior as the Project Neon Fatigue Syndrome (PNFS).  I made it up.

I often tell people that if you live in Las Vegas – or thereabouts – and you are bored, then you are doing something wrong!

2017 – Wine, Home, Plans, #VegasStrong

I read tweets and FaceBook inquiries from worried friends asking if I was "okay." Okay from what? I turned on the TV and was unprepared for the horror.

Mice and Men and Geeking Out. The Return.
